Woody Harrelson Plans Directorial Debut With ‘Lost in London’

Woody Harrelson is to direct his first feature film.

The actor, who rose to fame in the 1980s TV sitcom Cheers, has written a script called Lost In London.

In an interview with Screen Daily, Woody revealed that he plans to make the movie, which is set in the U.K. capital, after he finishes filming Rob Reiner’s Iraq war drama Shock and Awe. The project means the 55-year-old has had to pull out of George Clooney‘s forthcoming film Suburbicon.

“I won’t be able to do George’s movie because the timing clashes with that one (Shock and Awe),” he said. “Then I’ll shoot a movie based in London called Lost in London, which I wrote and will direct.”

Further details about Lost in London are yet to be released.

A movie of the same name screened in the U.S. in 1985, with the plot following Webster star Emmanuel Lewis as an American child who loses his parents while on holiday.

However, it is not known if Woody’s film has any relation to it.

Woody will next be seen on screens in another Rob Reiner drama, LBJ, in which he plays 36th U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The film, which follows Johnson’s elevation to the presidency after the assassination of previous president John F. Kennedy, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada earlier this month (Sep16), but is yet to receive a wider release date.
